Just depends on the skill level of the people you are coaching. Also depends on why the people are swimming - whether it be to get in shape, compete, have fun, etc.

I'd talk with your swimmers and fing out what their goals are. Then from there design workouts. Perhaps have 2 different work outs; one for competing and one for staying in shape.
